I apologize for my extended absence, but there’s a whole other project on the go over here, and it’s not much fun to look at it. After six fantastic years in Toronto (during which time, L and I met — just weeks after we each moved here — fell in love, moved in together, and, while in Switzerland, got engaged!) we are moving. And not just apartments, but cities.
L was offered a great job in Ottawa, so off we go. My job, which continues to grow and get more time consuming (but also more interesting), has made it possible for me to just take everything I do in Toronto and move it to Ottawa with me (there’s a bureau there I’ll work out of), which removed the only real impediment we had. I’m very excited to see our new place (L was there to see it — don’t worry, we aren’t moving in based solely on photos) and get to know our new neighbourbood, and city, but there are a lot things I’ll miss about Toronto. That’s going to have to wait for a whole other post, though, because our moving date is mere days away and there is still so, so much packing to do.
Thank goodness my stash is pretty well packed all the time. I just had bit and pieces to box up, and as you can see, I made sure to do that first. (I also set aside lots of project-ready yarn, in case unpacking takes longer than anticipated. I don’t want to have to go looking around fr something to work on.) Priorities, right?
How exciting! I hope we get to hear about all the new things you discover in Ottawa, especially the yarn and yarn shops.
I hope everything goes well for your move!
Good luck with the move xx
Hope it all goes well! I can very much relate to the living out of boxes situation, having moved from London to Copenhagen last year. As stressful as it is, I’m sure it will be very exciting to live in a new city. And congrats on the engagement and the new job 🙂
Exciting! I can’t wait to hear about Ottawa and the new place and of course, knitting. So lucky to have the job thing work out so neatly, too.
Good luck with it all!
Congratulations on so much adventure!
oh wow, congrats on the new job! I’m sure the move will go well, and it will be fun to discover what Ottawa has to offer. Good luck with the transition!
Good luck with your move! I hope it goes well!
Love that you have some pre-ready projects! 🙂
